The Union League Club of New York City is
one of the few private clubs in America with a history of unwavering commitment
to our nation through deep civic involvement, charitable contributions, and
military support. Hosting many outstanding speakers from policy makers to
notable authors, the Club will elevate your ideals of American citizenship
through art, culture, and discourse.
Today, Club members gather cordially for
social events, theatre evenings, wine tastings, or just to meet friends for a
convivial drink at the bar. The dining rooms reflect a subdued elegance with a
chef and wine cellar that compare favorably with any in the city.
History & Tradition
Founded in 1863 by a group of concerned citizens to
help preserve the Union, The Union League Club has built, over ensuing years, a
record of distinguished service to our country. Many prominent civic, state,
and national leaders have enjoyed the fellowship of the Club, including fifteen
Presidents, seven Senators, many Congressmen, diplomats, cabinet members, and
scores of chief executive officers of major corporations. These members include
Theodore Roosevelt, who managed his early political career from the Club’s
chambers, as well as J. Pierpont Morgan, John Jay, William Cullen Bryant,
Chester A. Arthur, and Thomas Nast.
